Why do you need the manual foot treatment skill set?

The joints of the foot act as a lever that requires both mobility and stability. Joint stiffness can interfere
with‎ this dual role. Manual foot treatments will help ease foot pain such as cuboid syndrome and plantar fasciitis by reducing joint stiffness. Decreasing joint stiffness restores gait function and balance.
Manual foot treatments can be either be a stand alone or adjunct treatment. Integrating manual foot treatments into your practice will improve the quality of life of your patients and lead to more referrals.

The workshop is based ​on ​the ​teachings ​of ​mobilizations ​and ​manipulations ​of ​the ​foot ​by ​Andrew ​Still ​MD, ​DO, ​John ​Hiss ​MD ​and ​Rue ​Tikker ​DPM.
